Okay, get ready for the big surprise. I fell head over heels for Early Bird pattern at Cape May and had to bring the pattern home. It is designed by Lori Brechlin and sold by Spruce Ridge Studios. It was great as designed but when I started pulling loops had a different vision for my finished rug ~ I wanted framing all around.
Kris always draws her patterns with a nice margin beyond the design so used that plus an added piece of cotton to the left and right side for ease of hooking.
Below is the photo of the Kris' hooked Early Bird. I like her textured wool for the bird's breast much better than what I used. Also like her angled tail feathers.....maybe I'll change mine.
TGIF for all you worker bees, for me it is just another weekend day.
